this was an utter, unmitigated disaster for the security of the united states and for the interest of the united states in the dangerous world we live in. the sanctimonious comments by general holder today are this, self-serving and self-centered. we ought to be concerned of what is in the interest of the united states of america. you nailed it absolutely right. what good is there to be gained by trying these mass murderers, war criminals in civilian courts with rules designed for conventional crimes committed by conventional criminals as general mukazie once said. they'll challenge the way they were treated and what about the chain of evidence and did we have all the constitutional nicities in a war? they're going to proclaim outrageous treatment and lie about it because they've got the world stage and this will serve to recruit additional jihaddists because they're going to attack america throughout this entire episode, the sorry episode and they're going to try and get support throughout the muslim world for their cause by ex-core eighting -- excoriating the united states of america and our v
to be very important. but the biggest thing is the united states is going to do well. i mean, we can't move the railroad to china or india. they haven't figured out how to do that. so sort of like the song of new york-- we have to make it here or we can't make it anywhere. >> rose: frank sinatra. >> but it does move move a ton of good 470 miles on one gallon of diesel. a train replaces 280 trucks on the road. it emidst far less into the atmosphere that's damaging than trucking, and it moves-- i'm talking about the whole rail industry-- it moves 40% of the good. >> rose: and you have new ports of entry like houston. >> and we're going to have more people in this country and they're going to be using more kdz gdz over time. sure, there's a bad year from time to time. in the next 100 years there will probably be 15 bad years and i don't know what order they'll appear but i know the railroads will be essential. >> rose: when you called charlie munger and said i'm thinking about this, did he say right on warren? >> if charlie said right on warren, i would figure it would be a wrong number. that
of the september 11th hijackers and advocated jihad against the united states. and in a stunning change in the legal war on terror, the obama administration announced we'll try the master mind of 9/11, kalid shaikh mohammed and four others from guantanamo in a court in new york city. what's behind this decision and is it possible they will be acquitted? joining us columnist dan ettinger, editorial board member, dorothy rabid wits. >> everything in his life, that pointed to this, he said outrageous things at long lectures and the response was we have to let him do his things. >> at walter reed hospital. >> at walter reed and people sent him to of all things, school. they sent him to a university lecture place, he would be responsible to this. he carried a card that said soldier of islam we now discover. he-- >> people are seeing all of this. why didn't anybody blow the whistle? >> look, what's really happened is americans are not going to forget this happened. cowardess prevented anyone from interfering, the only word to use, drop political correctness. >> cowardess on who's part? >> on
. >> i am looking at this from the threat that this poses to the united states. i think it is unwise for the president to move these individuals and these trials into a civilian court in new york city. trace: security concerns are not the only issue. consider the context for millions of americans who live and work in new york. this decision has profound and personal implications for them because this was their city that was attacked. it was their family and friends who died. while some of those most affected will no doubt lineup to seek justice exacted on those accused of the crime, others argue the suspects and should never be allowed to set foot anywhere near the sacred earth of ground zero, where so many lives were lost. jamie colby has more reaction from family members. first, catherine herridge as live in washington. what is the effect of trying these suspects in civilian court? >> thanks. prosecutors in new york must begin anew. charges must be brought, the motions and the hearings. the militant -- the military courts are now null and void. once transferred, the five men, inclu
into office on a promise of change. including asserting greater independence in dealing with the united states. prime minister yukio hatoyoma has kept that promise, making it clear that japan will no longer allow itself to be treated as a rubber stamp for u.s. policy, especially on the issue of american military bases. he has gotten washington's attention, and its respect. and by today, relations seemed to be warming once again. in tonight's "lead focus" the president's analysis of u.s./japanese relation. president obama arrived in japan friday afternoon, tokyo time, the first stop on a four-nation tour that will include singapore, china and south korea. shortly after his arrival, president obama met with the japanese prime minister, yukio hatoyoma. among the issues on the table, afghanistan, north korea and global warming. in their talks, obama and the prime minister addressed biggest sore spot in u.s./japan relations -- the presence of an air base on okinawa. many japanese are demanding that the base be closed, with protests takin place prior to obama's visit. after today's talks the two lea
as a citizen of the united states is just appalling. i think eric holder should have left them in guantanamo bay and be tried there. i lived in new york in 2000 and 2001. it was just terrible. for them to be tried in a federal court, it just speaks to this country to give people that do not ware uniforms, do not apply to the geneva convention to come to our country and then be given rights like a citizen. host: david, in this newspaper article, attorney general holder elected to proceed with the first u.s. criminal prosecution alleged to have been directly involved in the plot eight years ago that targeted the world trade center and pent he gone because of his full confidence in the successful outcome. tell us why you are not as convinced of the outcome? caller: i'm not confident because i believe that in our country, people are innocent until proven guilty. when you use water boarding and all these things they are trying to use against ournqq governmen why should a terrorist be given rights in our country. host: let's go to the democratic line. caller: i think they should be tried here. t
of events in iraq. the most important, obviously, non-regional is the united states. will the iraqi relationship with the united states be along the lines in which it is envisioned in the security agreement? in the non-military side, non-security side, i would say, yes. in the sort of softer areas of the economic, cultural and social interchange and so on. i think, yes, this is probably one of the cornerstones i think, that one can build on, and i can envision a country in 2020 that has a large number of, for example, graduates who came from the united states. a large number of nongovernmental organizations, a large number of cultural offices and exchanges. so that relationship at least the cultural level will be maintained, if not strengthened. with iran, how will iran's relationship with iraq be? i think it's to do with the general pattern in which iraq is going to resolve its regional issues. whether we're going to continue to act as a one-armed partner in the area where we try to weave ourselves in a broader way into a larger economic framework and political framework that would
will not be transferred to the united states for prosecution until all legal requirements are satisfied, including those in recent legislation requiring a 45-day notice and report to the congress. i have already spoken this morning to governor paterson and to mayor bloomberg and they are committed to working closely to ensure that all security and related concerns are properly addressed. i have every confidence that we can safely hold these trials in new york as we have so many previous terrorist trials. for the many americans who lost friends and relatives in the attacks of september 11, 2001 and on the uss cole, nothing can bring back those loved ones. but they deserve the opportunity to see the alleged plotters of those attacks held accountable in open court, an opportunity that has too long been delayed. today's announcement marks a significant step forward in our efforts to close guantanamo and to bring to justice those individuals who have conspired to attack our nation and our interests abroad. for over two hundred years, our nation has relied on a faithful loot -- relied on the appearance -- on

into the process, what we have seen over the past several months is a united states president stepping out in his early days of his administration, making a strong commitment to achieve a comprehensive israeli- palestinian agreement. nt to achieve a prehencive israeli/political agreement. appointing a -- senator george mitchell as special envoy. a three snat signal that the president and the senator were determined to move forward quickly. and finally our last thanks. that this administration will stand the course, notwithstanding the difficulties that has occurred. however, the last several months towards achieving an end of a conflict and a two-state solution. notwithstanding this commitment and the clear determination of the u.s. administration. on the politician side we have seen in recent days president mahmoud abbas indicating he will not only not run for re-election, but that he may well step down as president. of the yunsy the beginning of a major pairtime shift on the palestinian scene. are we now looking at a sober reality that there really is no partner for people there on the israeli
, i have yet to be convinced that it is in the national security interests of the united states. there are a lot of people who failed to mention this as an important topic for many years, who have apparently found this country on the map recently. >> asked what bit of information was holding him back, mr. obama said nothing is missing, per se, except a strategy for success in turning around the 8-year-old war. >> i don't think this is a matter of some data or information that i'm waiting on. it is a matter of making certain that when i send young men and women into war, and i devote billions of dollars of u.s. taxpayer money, that it's making us safer. >> the president promised to make his decision, quote, soon, but not before at least one more strategy session. >> i doubt that this is going to be finished again without an additional -- at least an additional meeting. >> analysts say strategic debates deprive u.s. forces of clarity. >> some think these decisions should be made in conference rooms in washington and reevaluating strategy, instead of giving commanders on the ground
on in both the united states and in cuba. and firstly perhaps i could advise you with respect to the habeas corpus memorandum. we have an order from mr. khadr's habeas corpus judge a u.s. district court in d.c. this is something we should have put in your book of authorities but neglected to. as this order indicates that habeas proceeding has been stayed so it is not advancing at the present time. and as you can see from the terms of this order it has essentially been stayed pending the outcome of the military commission prosecution and also the appeals that would follow such a prosecution. >> so it's suspended rather than stayed? >> well, the order is stayed but, i suppose, it could be suspended. but mr. khadr is not able to advance that application at the present time because of the existence of the prosecution. now, what happened after that is the prosecution was moving ahead more or less when we received the executive order from president obama, which is at tab 3 of our condensed book. this was signed just a couple days after president obama's nothing else. -- inauguration. there's a nu
aimed at government control over the people's lives in the united states of america. the tea baggers are protesters -- or tea party yers, rather, are protesting about government seizing a huge chunk of the american economy and imposing near dictatorial controls. and by the way, i don't think the death panel thing is quite as far-fetched as a lot of commentators are saying. when the exchanges are put in, when the insurance exchanges are put in in states, that is going to allow a certain kind of almost death panel-like chrome by bureaucrats. so i don't think president clinton is on the right track here, although i do admire him a lot in terms of his taste in women in arkansas, but i do not think that he's barking up the right tree here. neil: now, now, now, now. adam, one of the issues i want to raise with you, again, regardless of what he said about tea partiers and all, is his thinking and is the democratic leadership's thinking, look, we don't want to run into the bus that we ran into surg the during when we would go home for a break when we had all these town hall protesters, we do

thoughts, first of all, about this decision to bring these key gitmo detainees to the united states for trial in new york city? >> it's a phenomenally bad decision on many, many levels and i suspect a decision based on a mix of politics and a desire to pander to, sort of the self-righteous liberal, setting the stage and putting the bush-cheney years on trial again. it's in a sense, i think what we're unfortunately about to do is open up years of a side show here in new york that's going to be very painful and also, going to be very damaging ultimately. it's going to provide a great deal of public relations spin to our adversaries overseas. >> i know you talked to people inside the intelligence community, the place where you once worked. how are they responding about this? >> well, the good thing about the cia, they just march on. they just get on with it. and regardless of what administration is there, that's the job that they do. i think, unfortunately, look, from a security standpoint, when we-- there have been some talk, even since holder's decision that bringing mohammed and the
